Renaming of the rehearsal rooms: María de Ávila and Tony Fabre
Apart from the two tribute galas for these two dance figures carried out during our 35th anniversary celebrations, in the CND we wanted to make their legacy live generation after generation by renaming the two rehearsal rooms in our headquarters after María de Ávila and Tony Fabre, respectively. They were simple ceremonies in which we counted on their relatives’ presence, as well as on the one of the people closest to the Company. Both our Artistic Director, José Carlos Martínez, and the closest relatives of the honorees said some moving words, recalling the permanent mark left by them in the national artistic heritage. Moreover, in the case of María de Ávila, Ana Isabel Elvira Esteban, author of a thesis on her, made a truly touching review on her life and work. Finally, after uncovering the plaques with new names on them, the persons attending enjoyed a nice aperitif in honour of this figures.
